The pups have now all had their vaccinations and micro chips installed.
My suggestion to the vet (who incidently I like) that he presented his partner (who I don't) with the invoice because it was due to his misdiagnosis we were having to do this, fell upon deaf ears. So begrudgingly I handed over the 416 euros,and, having made my feelings clear (for what it was worth!)started the fun journey home. The roads were pretty treacherous with a good covering of snow and ice and having five howling mutts determined to escape from their cardboard boxes in the cab of a pick-up added an extra dimension to the challenge!
Anyway, we are down to four tomorrow.'Lucky' (Mimi) is going to her new home in Guemene where I suspect she is destined to be the most spoilt dog in Brittany!
I have again this week been in talks with Identichip uk where Meg was registered and they still have no reports of her chip number being lost and all attempts to contact the registered owners have come to nothing, so the process of transferring the ownership to us is now in place. After a couple of hours in the snow,competition to sit nearest fire starts in earnest!
